    Me too, I do not trade the stock at this point, just waiting for a dip to add.

    Hi, Todays day trades for me are HAYZ and CNR. Bought HAYZ a bit too soon but hit CNR at right time. Target for CNR is .101 Target for HAYZ is .28

    I really like TDA "motion detector"

    and that they charge a flat 9.99 without that extra "per share" or "large order" charges ING robs you with.

    Only minus is having to wait 3 days for sales before you can use money again

    I just would like to add, getting a car loan isn't the problem, the problem is most people are considered a risk and are supposed to pay 12%,15% or even 20 % interest. Most dealers around here are making a lot of money on the financing, they don't care much about cars.
    But that is the problem. It's all about moving a line up and down the FICO scale. Back in the day of EZ money, the line moved down the scale where even marginal borrowers with scores below 600 were getting reasonable or semi-reasonable interest rates. That brought huge numbers of buyers into the market. This is the same as what happened with housing. Once credit freeze happened (because of high defaults on mortgages as the ARMs adjusted upward), less money was available, and bank appetite for risk waned. This moved the line up the FICO scale, so now the marginal guys were facing double digit interest rates, squeezing them out of the market because they can't afford the high payments and high downpayments required by the banks. Fewer buyers, fewer cars sold. Detroit screwed.
    This will start to reverse itself, to a point. Won't see EZ money for a while, perhaps a decade or more. But, economy can still grow and boom can and will happen again.

Problem is, Congress was talking about that with the first TARP money at end of Q4 and dumped billions into banks but didn't attach strings to force lending nor did they do anything about the toxic asset issue. Congress sucks.

    SIRI will soar as economy thaws.....coming soon...I hope.
    There are a lot of issues and the Banks hoarding is one of them. A guy on Bloomberg the other day said that 98% of loans on the books are current. So how many loans are actually toxic? Will relaxation of Mark-to-Market regs ease the situation? Are banks hoarding cash in case they need to make large markdowns?

    Is this the same scenario as with the S&C crisis where the lending rules swung hard the other way for a few years? A caller on a sirius show claimed to have a credit score of 804 and BMW turned him down for a loan and required a minimum of 810. This may be B/S but depending on the bank, may be true. I don't know because I haven't borrowed money since 1987 and have no need to now. I own my house and pay cash for cars. I could afford bigger and better but it feels good to be debt-free.

    Awesome! That's a good spot to be in! Put 5 kids thru college...so....not debt free yet....but working on it....perhaps in 3 years. A nice SIRI grand slam would sure help that project!

    IMO...todays PPS is a real teaser...looks like sideways with maybe a .005 gain today and close at .3650 unless something shakes it out this afternoon and we close at my prediction .37...better a penny a day up than down.

    The guy was a complete IDIOT. I was the one that had to educate him, and on a toyota, they only had XM available, but since I already have Sirius, I am going to see if I still get the discount for an additional account.
